The Bodhisattva Path

'The trend of withdrawal may be said to embody the wisdom aspect of the spiritual life, while the trend of involvement embodies the compassion aspect. Although these trends are contradictory, both must be developed in the course of the spiritual life.' 

How do we bring these two trends into our going for refuge? Is it possible to walk the Bodhisattva path in our busy lives? We’ll be exploring its relevance to us as current and future Order members.
